Hi I'm James Wilkin

I'm a Son, A Brother, An Uncle to 3 beautiful kids, A missionary in Japan and I'M A MORMON

About Me

I was born in australia with english parents and i currently serve a mission for the Japan Kobe Mission

Why I am a Mormon

initially i became a Mormon because my father is a Mormon but even though i was born into the church somewhere along the line there has to be some kind of conversion ... otherwise i wouldn't be serving a mission right now. I know that the lord listens and answers prayers !!! i have no doubt in my mind ... Before i came out onto my mission i had questions and was finding it hard to learn the doctrine so i prayed to my father in heaven with all my heart might mind and strength! I prayed aloud so that i would be focused on what i was saying to him and made sure i was specific. In my prayer i asked god "how am i going to learn this gospel thati love so much and how am i going to be able to teach it to those i meat when they ask me about what i believe" i have always heard of people praying and reading the scriptures hand in hand so as i closed my prayer in the name of christ our saviour i took my book of mormon and opened up to a random page. The page i hit was perfect for me and i read Alma 42:31. This was my answer "And now, O my son, ye are called of God to preach the word unto this people. And now, my son, go thy way, declare the word with truth and soberness, that thou mayest bring souls unto repentance, that the great plan of mercy may have claim upon them. And may God grant unto you even according to my words. Amen." I knew then that if i had faith enough i would be able to receive the help we all need from god and he would help me to be the missionary he wanted me to be. I know god lives, I know that the Book of Mormon is his true and holy word. I Know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and did translate the Book of Mormon correctly. I know that right now we have a living prophet who speaks with God and leads those willing to follow, in the right direction.

How I live my faith

ALL DAY EVERY DAY !!!!!!!!!! i am a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I know it I live it I Love it

What is faith?

James Wilkin
To have faith is to “hope for things which are not seen, which are true” Faith to me is like a little seed and with any seed they need to be fed to enable them to grow. But this seed inst a normal seed it doesnt just need water and sunlight but it does need a different kind of light ^_^ the light we need to feed to our seed of faith comes from the light given to us by our savior Jesus Christ. and we can gain that light by simply believing in him. The other thing that our seed of faith needs is a metaphorical watering can ... but this watering can only has three holes in it .. as we use the can and tip it on our seed ... the things that pour out will be:- 1. Prayer 2. Reading the Book of Mormon 3. Going to church Those three basics seem hard at first and maybe strange also but once your faith becomes your favorite verb... then the three basics become your main fundamentals and you cant go a day without reading that wonderful book, you cant get to sleep till you've prayed and your week feels incomplete without church. Faith is a doing word ... faith is predicated upon obedience ... faith, without works, is dead. Show more Show less
